Dr St Just will be offering one-to-one sessions instead. Please contact us on contact@oxisc.org if you’d like to get in touch with her.

This was going to be a non-residential, 2-day workshop with Trauma Specialist Anngwyn St Just, Ph.D. (Arizona), hosted by Silvia Siret and Richard Pantlin, Directors of OxISC.

We all know how hurtful, disruptive events in our childhood can have a lasting negative impact on our lives, especially if there is lack of strong parenting. Less appreciated is the effect that historic social trauma can have down the generations. Wars, economic crashes, colonialism, empire, natural disasters, invasions, revolutions, all resonate down time, affecting the offspring of those immediately involved. And, if we are not careful, harming the lives of several generations, whether, as children, we come from so-called “perpetrators” or “victims”.

This workshop is for you if:

  • you suspect such a historic trauma in your family is affecting your present life and relationships,
  • you are interested in the social impacts of historic trauma or
  • you work with people impacted by past trauma.

Professional faciliators/therapists will also receive a CPD Certificate at the end of the 2 days.

Workshop times: Sat/Sun (1st & 2nd July), 10am – 5pm.
Lunch not included in ticket price.
